    Easy on the hazing

    I just got the call that everyone dreams of - ORG status. I'm humbled and honored to be part of the big club. Go easy on this rook. I'll carry your bags and pay for the donuts - just don't make me wear a dress.

    Thanks for the callup, gang!

    Hey, that means I'm not the new guy anymore.



    Now get to work on cleaning the toilets.
    "Since I've been with the Reds in 1989, we've never had a farm system this loaded," Bowden said. "If we were the New York Yankees and had unlimited dollars, we could have traded for Colon, (Jeff) Weaver, Rolen, (Cliff) Floyd, (Kenny) Rogers and Finley and gotten them all -- and still held onto our top five prospects. That's an amazing statement."

    You guys ever hear of the Baby Elephant Walk? 'Cause you're about to be part of the chain.

    After that, a round of soggy biscuit.

    you don't seem to use one, although it could probably be argued that it might not be a bad idea.

    Dude, by any chance were you a Beta Theta Pi? Or a Delta Tau Delta?

    Just to set the record straight, I got my callup last July, and I never had to do any of that stuff.

    BTW, it looks like Joe Valentine (third one from left) is ready for those activities.
